Default CE 35 GFX Blue vs. Yellow screens

I see when people are selling Turbo 35 GFX chargers, the seller will tell you that the charger has either a yellow or blue screen. Are they any advantages to one or the other or was it a running change do to a supplier change, or design improvement?

I believe the two chargers are the same, there is no difference, It is just a settings change that is made depending on what color of screen you want.

The yellow screen is newer and I think has a slight software upgrade, but I'm not sure what all that entails.

When I had my blue screen upgraded to Lipo they said it would get all of the yellow screen updates minus the yellow screen free of charge. Then I paid extra to get the yellow screen on top of that.

Have you checked their website? It may explain it in detail there.

When the GFX first came out, it had the blue screen. I personally heard several ppl commenting about the blue screen being difficult to read. Competition Electronics then released an updated version. One of these updates was an easier to read yellow screen.

The blue screen is OK if you are always indoors but is a little hard to read outdoors. The Yellow screen is easy to read anywhere, to pay for the update is a toss of the coin, to have your choice, no issue get the yellow screen.
